We all want more storage, right? That’s why I built a garment rack that will eventually go in our basement. We have so much overflow that we ended up using all the closet space in our office for extra jackets, wedding dresses, etc. Doesn’t help that since we have an old house, we have some pretty small closets. Eventually I would love to get some canvas hanging bags for when storing out of season items on this.

1. I started off with the stained pieces of wood and the piping all sprayed with Oil Rubbed Bronze Spray.
4. In order to put together the piping, you have to start from one side and work your way to the other. I screwed in the floor flange first into the right hand side only. Do not screw both floor flanges in at this point, as you would have to remove one side in order to assemble all the piping.
9.Twist the last floor flange onto the bottom of the piping before you screw it to the boards.
